Dappled Cities spent 2010 dabbling in the warm waters of musical praise, after casting their Zounds out to a sea of critics. They even received the Independent Album of The Year award from Rolling Stone for their third LP (Zounds)-- only to disappear for a couple of years. Two years later, they're back-- split from Dangerbird Records in favor of a different direction. "Run With The Wind," is their first single and it's been described as, "an epic space-pop odyssey" (accurate). They aren't just dabbling in the cosmos anymore, it's a full-time immersion.
For that old(er) school DC sound, check out the band playing a live set at SXSW a couple of years ago:
